video Build a 2.4Ghz Helical Antenna
Although this helical antenna only has 3 turns it is portable and the performance, only slightly less than a 14 turn helical antenna.

Silly question perhaps, but why would I want a 2.4Ghz Helical Antenna? What possible use is it to me? Do you use it for Televisions? WiFI? Eat radioactive pot-noodles?

... Not that templates are bad or anything, and I'm sure the video gets the point across - but taking the time to write out an exhaustive step-by-step would help out a whole lot.

Sorry, I am not seeing a link to the template for the proper number of turns.
